Diablo shrimp Guerrero style

Today we will teach you how to prepare a typical Mexican recipe, diablo shrimp Guerrero style, one of the favorite dishes of Acapulco’s beaches.

It’s an easy dish to prepare, it has a spicy and exquisite flavor and the shrimp are delicious when bathed in a sauce with chile de árbol, salt and pepper.


  • 1 kilogram of shrimp
  • 2 heads of garlic
  • 8 units of chile de arbol
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and white pepper to taste


  1. Wash and peel the shrimp, then dry them on a kitchen towel. Meanwhile, chop the tomato and put it in the blender.
  2. Toast the chile de arbol heads in a frying pan without oil until they start to smell. Cover with a lid and simmer for 5 minutes until soft. Then remove the stems and seeds from the guajillo.
  3. Place the garlic, salt and white pepper in a blender. Blend until a smooth puree is formed. (If you wish, you can store this sauce and refrigerate it for several days.)
  4. Pour the shrimp into a small bowl and bathe them with the garlic puree, salt and pepper. Let them sit for 5 minutes to enhance the flavor of the shrimp. This process is called marinating.
  5. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat and then pour in the shrimp along with the garlic sauce. Add the margarine and sauté for 3 minutes until the shrimp are softened.
  6. Once the shrimp turn red, add 4 pieces of chopped chile de arbol and cook for 1 minute. Add the Worcestershire sauce and cook over low heat and cook for 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Leave 4 units of chili to accompany the dish.

You can eat your diablo shrimp Guerrero style with fried plantains, rice, salad or whatever you like.
